Thaipusam – Little India, Singapore
Photography Project by Jose Jeuland
The hallmark of this festival procession are the devotees who carry “Kavadis”, with some at the ultimate test of physical sacrifice allow metal to pierce their skins as they bear the Kavadi. It is believed that when the mind is empty of all thoughts of material wealth, that a devotee would be able to carry out this test without feeling physical pain.
